, wxyt talk radio. okay, doc, as i understand it you tell me if i'm wrong. about 11,000 detroit city workers and mayor bing is cutting 4 to 500. i'm not impressed with that. i think he should be cutting 20% of the workforce, not 5%. >> no, you're absolutely right, larry. the problem is they're still playing catch up. year after year they're like we got to run to catch up with it instead of coming out and getting in front of it. the city has shrunk in population. it makes sense. we have to shrink all those government workers. it's not that we don't want certain services, it's just what you have to do. we do it in our personal life or are supposed to. >> those unions don't want it. we saw the clip when this story first came up that gal on the city council said detroit delivered for barack obama in the election, he should now bring home the bacon for detroit. the unions don't want it. the media don't want it. i'm not sure if dave bing who was a great basketball player, maybe not such a hot mayor. this thing has to go under a financial control board, doc. you know that. they're incapable
in some of the inner city schools in that area. let me read you what she said. somebody comes into the school, they have to get buzzed in. this guy got buzzed in. we don't know yet why, how, when and where. but he got buzzed in. the buzzer goes off and sets an alert. follow me on this. somebody buzzes in. maybe they go through a window. teachers start a drill. the kids are put into a corner. listen to this. shades are pulled down, lights are then flicked off to leave the impression to a potential killer that nobody's in the classroom. now, i know people go to newtown to avoid all this. but unfortunately, is this the kind of drill we're going to have to put -- i have a home right next door in redding, connecticut. it's an awful nice area, god bless it. people go there to get away from the inner city. but look what happened. is this the kind of place -- is this the direction that our schools are going? >> what i think you're getting at is almost a comparison to what we've recently done with regard to anti-terrorism where people have had to change the way in which they've conduct
detroit bankrupt city government, too. this sure isn't the free market, and i asked why should a texas taxpayer bail out detroit? >>> breaking news from syria, and it is a blockbuster. the assad regime is walking and loading its chemical weapons, ready to use them on its own people. nbc's chief pentagon correspondent joins us now. jim, is this the red line president obama was warning about? >> well, not quite yet. u.s. officials tell us that the syrian military is poised to use chemical weapons against their own people, and all it would take really is the final order from syrian president assad. but we have learned that as of today, all the precursored chemicals for that deadly nerve gas have in fact now been loaded on to aerial bombs, but those bombs are still in the depots. they haven't been loaded on to airplanes yet, and president assad hasn't given the order. but they're pretty close, larry, and that's why earlier this week, of course, president obama issued a very strong statement aimed at president assad saying look, if you use these weapons against your people, there will be se
debate is squarely back in the spotlight tonight after the murder/suicide by nfl player in kansas city, second amendment instead of blaming the sick people who use them. republicans have responded to a fiscal cliff counter offer to president obama. eamon javers joins us now from washington with all the details. good evening. >> reporter: good evening. leapt me walk you through the specifics or at least what specifics we have so far from this boehner counter offer and you can see where it falls short from the white house's perspective right in the top line take a look at the details here. boehner and the other house republicans are asking for $800 billion in new tax reform revenue. that's short of the $1.6 trillion that the president would like to see there. also health savings of $600 billion. mandatory savings of $300 billion. revisions of cpa of 200 billion. other discretionary saving 300 billion. they say net savings is $2.2 trillion all told. the white house says this plan is not balanced, and interestingly there's a little side skirmish here between the speaker of the house john b
. >> can i switch gears briefly on the question of detroit city, its terrible finances, the likelihood that it's going into bankruptcy, some of the local politicians asked president obama to bail out detroit city. do you think a bail out like that's coming? >> i think we need detroit to accept responsibility. we need a healthy detroit. in michigan we want a healthy detroit. we need detroiters to accept responsibility. they are free to ask the president for more money. i can tell you there will not be more money coming from lansing. we need to get detroit fixed and move forward together. >> apparently mayor dave bing, the former basketball great and a good businessman before he was mayor says, and i will quote -- he blames the culture of victimization and entitlement for detroit's woes. i can write that large for the entire usa budget deficit but let's stick to detroit. is the mayor correct? >> i will leave mayor bing to stand for his own comments. i believe we need a healthy detroit and there is great opportunity in detroit just as there is opportunity all over the state. we are turnin
city. rudy jew rudy giuliani. most folks want you to run again, former mayor, but i don't think that's in the cards. let me begin with an easy question. what do you make of this millionaire's threshold? john boehner's plan b, spending cuts, tax rates? you tell me. >> i agree with heather. probably the best john boehner can do. difficult for the republicans. 80-plus just ran four years ago with a promise they wouldn't raise taxes. i can understand why he's having trouble getting those votes, but i think he has no choice but to the try to pass snag soomething pushes the ball back into the president's court. the passage of the spending decreases was important. that's really where the emphasis should be. in tan ideal world, shouldn't raise taxes, shouldn't give the government more money because they're wasting money. we're not an an ideal world. i think john boehner, plan b is probably the best he can get. >> ask i ask, the other side of heather's point, republicans are losing the messaging battle. >> no question about it. >> a threat they're losing the messaging battle? >> the point mad
the problem. you have the customers of the ports and the city saying fix this. when it comes to the president in this economy. we are 8 days in and he hasn't started the process of reconvening the board. >> the board is already so pro union as is the president fresh off his re-election even though this is not going to be a california emergency, this could be a national emergency for closing down those huge ports. that is it for tonight's show. thank you for watching. we will see you tomorrow night we need premarket capitalism. not a union hold up.
